Patient Testimonials

“From the moment we walked in, the staff was wonderful, the office was clean and had warm welcome. The lady at the front desk was very nice and interacted with the my kids which was nice. Dr. Livingston was great and very good at explaining everything to us and answering any questions we asked. You could tell he has the patients best interest at heart. I would recommend this doctor and location to everyone who lives in Cumming and is in need of an excellent foot doctor.”


“The whole experience from start to finish has been excellent! Kim the receptionist is very warm, competent and professional. The receptionist/MA is the first impression that a patient has of the office. She truly represents the practice in a very positive way! Dr. Livingston is very warm, caring, compassionate and gentle. He is very knowledgeable and presents the findings in a way that any layperson can understand. I will be recommending them to anyone I know and care about that needs pediatric care.. Thank you to both of you!”


“I had such a wonderful experience with Dr. Livingston. He spent plenty of time with me and took the time to answer all of my questions! It as so easy to schedule and this office was so accommodating when scheduling! Dr. Livingston and his staff have excellent “bedside” manner! I have been back to see Dr. Livingston since my first visit and will continue to see him! This was by far the best experience in a medical office I have ever had!”
